Kibbler: I have in my pocket a list of over 100 sources of caffeine in the State Department.

We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the stimulant-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of not sleeping and seeing through time exists and will persist.

FTFA: Tea: Some people who get jittery after drinking coffee switch over to tea. Although tea contains less caffeine than coffee, it can still be a significant source of the ingredient. Regular black tea contains between 14 mg and 60 mg of caffeine, the Mayo Clinic says, and green tea contains between 24 mg and 40 mg.

Since when has tea ever been a "hidden" source of caffeine?

It sounds like this MyHealthNewsDaily Staff Writer, Rachael Rettner, is just making sh*it up to meet her article deadlines.

"Hidden" sources of caffeine if you are an idiot that is:

1. Supplements:  "A study published earlier this year analyzed 20 dietary supplements - including multivitamins and performance-enhancing supplements - and found that six of the supplements' labels failed to list the amount of caffeine contained in the product. "  - So they just don't tell you how much, but caffeine is ON THE LABEL

2.  Medication:  "Some medications contain caffeine. Two tablets of Excedrin Extra Strength pain medication contain a total of 130 mg of caffeine" - Again, ON THE LABEL.  And thanks, I take Excedrin FOR the caffeine, as it helps kill a migraine right quick

3. Decaf coffee:  "A 2006 study found that decaf coffee purchased at coffee shops and restaurants contained up to 14 mg of caffeine per 16-ounce serving." - So, about 1/10th the amount of a cup of coffee?

4. Chocolate:  "Eat a whole cup of semisweet chocolate chips, and you'll get a caffeine dose equivalent to that of a cup of coffee (104 mg) " - Who the FARK eats a whole cup of chocolate chips in one sitting?  Someone with bigger worries than caffeine, that's who

5.  Tea:  No shiat, sherlock.
